    * Provides more mouse utility - you can select a region,
      then operate on its files. Alternative ways to select
      (mark) multiple files:

      . drag a region, then choose Mark in the popup menu
      . click, then Shift-click, as in Windows Explorer
      . Control-click, as in Windows Explorer (alternately marks
        and unmarks the file)

That sounds good.  Would someone please install that feature?

    * Provides fancy highlighting (customizable through user

      . You can see immediately if a file has the wrong
        permissions (e.g. writable or executable when it
        shouldn't be).

That sounds useful, if it is reliable.

    * When a file is marked, the entire line is highlighted.

    * Files that are marked and files that are flagged for
      deletion have the mark/flag highlighted differently.

Those features sound useful.

    * The entire line is highlighted on mouse-over, regardless
      of where on the line the mouse is. Click `mouse-2'
      anywhere on the line to open its file or directory.

I don't understand that one.
